Los Angeles Limited Scope Representation Attorney


Limited Scope Representation is somewhat new to California courts. In the past, an attorney was responsible for all aspects of a case that involved their client, even though the client may have only retained him/her for one specific portion. Because of this, some attorneys were unwilling to take on these cases. Often, a client could not afford to pay an attorney to handle their entire case so they would simply go without representation. The result was messy court hearings that were filled with mistakes and many individuals not being able to properly argue for themselves.

With Limited Scope Representation, many of those problems are resolved. By using LSR, an attorney can sign on to represent a client for a very specific portion of their case. This keeps the cost down for the client, and limits the liability for the attorney. An agreement is signed upfront which outlines what the attorney will be helping with, and clearly defines the scope of the services. With that in place, a client is able to consult the attorney on any areas where they feel that they need help, without accruing the bill that can come with complete representation. If at anytime the client decides to retain the attorney for the entire case, that change can be made.
